Must Plays

Royal Portrush (Dunluce)

Royal Portrush Golf Club

"I don’t think I would ever accept the notion that a golf course is perfect – not even The Old Course at St. Andrews – but boy does Royal Portrush come close. Tantalisingly close. To say I was completely and utterly blown away by the sheer quality and golfing aura that surrounds what will be the 2019 Open Championship venue is a gross understatement."

Royal County Down (Championship)

Royal County Down Golf Club

"The canvas at County Down is perfect for golf and it paints the most captivating of pictures. Visually it packs a big punch and the terrain is just wonderful for the best of golf. Dune-lined valleys, up-and-overs, soaring sandhills, undulating fairways, firm turf, dell greens, flags atop of plateaus, secret gorse lined walks from green-to-tee and a backdrop as stunning as they come.

Portstewart (Strand)

Portstewart Golf Club

"The championship Strand course at Portstewart in County Londonderry is one of the finest links in all of Ireland. Portstewart sometimes gets a bad rap for having just nine good holes (the front nine) along with an inferior back-nine. Now, this is true to a certain extent but I’d like to clarify and put it into context by saying that the front nine is rivetingly magnificent and the inward half still exceptionally good."

Highly Recommended

Castlerock (Mussenden)

Castlerock Golf Club

"Castlerock…. simply rocks! I’ll admit straightaway that the Mussenden Links at Castlerock in County Londonderry is right up my street. It’s an authentic, genuine, rugged links course that does everything you would expect of it and at times much more. It’s rough around the edges but that’s the way I like it and this natural layout certainly delivers."
